Subject: Re: [PATCH v6 2/5] drm/dp: Allow an early call to register DDC i2c bus
Date: Fri, 07 May 2021 17:18:32 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <8eedeb02dc56ecaed5d2f3cb8d929a3675b2c3da.camel@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210503145750.v6.2.Iff8f2957d86af40f2bfcfb5a7163928481fccea4@changeid>

Adding ville from Intel to also get their take on this.

In general we've been trying to move DRM to a design where we don't expose any
devices until everything is ready. That's pretty much the main reason that we
register things during bridge attach time. Note though that even before the
DDC bus is registered it should still be usable, just things like get_device()
won't work.

This isn't the first time we've run into a problem like the one you're trying
to solve though, Tegra currently has a similar issue. Something we discussed
as a possible long-term solution for this was splitting i2c_add_adapter() into
a minimal initialization function and a registration function. Linux's device
core already allows for this (device_initialize() and device_add(), which are
called together when device_register() is called). Would this be a solution
that might work for you (and even better, would you possibly be willing to
write the patches? :)
